Canary Beach Resort Winter Activities



No matter what season you come stay with us, there’s always something exciting to do around Canary Beach Resort!

We always offer an array of fun activities for the kids, as well as for the entire family.

In the winter, you’ll find cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, ice skating, ice fishing, and relaxing by the fireplace in our comfortable, well-furnished cabins.

This is also the perfect time of year to enjoy quiet retreats with friends, holiday celebrations with family, or even host a memorable scrapbooking getaway.

Several lake front cabins are available with in floor heat and fireplaces to keep you toasty year-round!

These new cabins can be set up for scrapbooking, crafting, holidays or other get-togethers.

Come to enjoy the fall colors, ice fishing, or just to relax!

Winter Accomodations

Canary Beach Resort’s lodging facilities are outstanding in winter! Our modern, spacious cabins are the best value in winter rentals around, and can accommodate parties of up to 20 guests.

Our two-bedroom vacation homes are perfect for groups of two to six guests. If tables are needed, two or three may be placed by the fireplace or in the great view room on the second level. For our snowmobilers, snowshoers, and cross-country skiers — the Centennial Trail is right outside your cabin door!

Our three-bedroom cabins are ideal for groups of four to eight guests. If tables are needed, four or six tables may be placed in living area by the fireplace facing the lake! The roomy kitchen island makes group meals a breeze.

The Wren’s Den (5 bedrooms) is wonderful for a group of seven to 18! If tables are desired, they will be placed in the second level loft and on the main floor by the fireplace. The break bar is perfect for potlucks, and the 50-inch HDTV makes movie or football viewing perfect. Plenty of room to store those helmets, boots and snowmobile suits!


Snowmobilers can access hundreds of miles of groomed trails nearby.

We’ve got ample parking, and plenty of space inside our cabins to safely store your gear.

Ice Fishing

We’ve got great fishing on Lake Villard, especially in the fall, winter and spring of the year.

Scrapbooking & Crafting Retreats

We have what we call “Self-Serve Scrapbooking Retreats”! We set up the cabins with tables, chairs and lights, and the groups come to have fun!

These ‘Girl’s Weekends’ do a variety of crafts, though some just come to relax, read, and hang out with their friends.

Our new two-bedroom and three-bedroom cabins are great for smaller groups, whereas the Wren’s Den (5 Bedrooms) is better for larger groups.

Pick a cabin and we will set it up with six-foot tables, new chairs, and the right lighting.
